Hilda Baci, the Nigerian chef, has reacted to her certification as the world record holder for the longest cooking marathon. 


On Tuesday, the Guinness World Records (GWR) announced the chef as the latest record holder with 93 hours 11 minutes.

“Following a thorough review of all the evidence, Guinness World Records can now confirm that Hilda Effiong Bassey, better known as Hilda Baci, has officially broken the record for the longest cooking marathon (individual), with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes,” the organisation said.

The organisation, however, said seven hours were deducted from her 100-hour stint “because mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early on in the attempt”.


“Hilda attempted to set a record of 100 hours, however, almost seven hours were deducted from her final total because she mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early on in the attempt,” the statement added.

Reacting to the development via her Twitter page, Baci described the announcement as the best news she would ever receive.

“This is the best news ever omg omg omg thank you so much,” she wrote.


In May, Baci undertook an attempt to break the record of 87 hours 45 minutes set by Lata Tondon, the Indian chef, in 2019.

She cooked over 100 pots of food during her four-day kitchen stint.
